Brought up, and read the First time.
I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin):

That is a very welcome statement. No doubt, the company's annual report will contain information about the investment policy and whether the directors are complying with it. We welcome all that, but it merely points us towards the investment policy, which I shall consider in a moment.
